Stephen Colbert Taunts 'Pimp' Facebook And Its CEO Mark 'Suckerberg'

  • Stephen Colbert: Stormy Daniels couldn't be more Trump's type 'if she was a fish filet wrapped in 100 ruble bill'

In the wake of Facebook coming under fire after it was revealed Cambridge Analytica was able to obtain private data from over 50 million Facebook users, The Late Show's Stephen Colbert is ready to rectify the situation.

Colbert was aghast at the error, calling it, "Fake news". Featuring bandleader Jon Batiste and his band Stay Human, the show is broadcast from the historic and newly renovated Ed Sullivan Theater.

It took only 400 odd days, but Stephen Colbert and President Trump are finally on the same page. Prior to that, Colbert spent eight years as a correspondent on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" as an on-air personality and writer of news satire for the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series. "You know nothing about me Sucker-berg", Colbert said, mocking the site's creator Mark Zuckerberg. "I apologize! Donald Trump is a great president". "This may be the best news I've heard all day".

The host then explained that CNN had published an article about Dana Carvey's impression of John Bolton on the previous night's show, but made a grave mistake in its reporting.

It's unclear if the network ran the story under the headline Colbert claimed.


CNN issued a correction on their website Friday.

"Come on, CNN - this isn't SNL", he continued, as the audience applauded and roared with laughter. Colbert also pointed out the differences between his show and SNL: "It was a Wednesday".

"You got three things wrong in three letters", he said. Still, it's nice just to be recognized. However, knowing the host who is full of antics, Colbert thanked MSNBC and not CNN, queueing laughter from the crowd.

Stephen Colbert finally found something to agree with President Trump about.
